I'll admit I have a bias for this hotel's location, as I lived a block and a half away when I was in graduate school -- it feels like I'm on home turf. That said, I love the feeling of being in the U-District, which has great transit links to downtown and Capitol Hill. You get to experience one of Seattle's neighborhoods, rather than the tourist areas downtown. But you can get to the Market, Fremont and Pioneer Square easily enough and avoid parking. The University of Washington is close by, and is pretty campus to roam around. There are also lots of cheap eateries on University Way --"The Ave", but no luxury restaurants. Consider the Deca if you want something more than a typical downtown.
We had a junior suite on the 14th floor, which had great views to the west. The room was spacious, with a king bed and a sofa. It was fairly quiet, though we heard random voices now and then. The most noise I heard was from the construction across the street on my last morning: for some reason they picked that day to start work at 4:30AM.
The staff were all pleasant and helpful. Their car service arrangements are a very nice service, especially since not all Seattle cabs take credit cards.
We go back to Seattle regularly and will stay here again.
